What to watch out for


NII growth looks still higher than peers, but it is expected to moderate compared to June quarter. NII had risen 27 percent Y-o-Y in June quarter.


Analysts expect loan growth between 18-20 percent while deposit growth is expected to be in line with loan growth.


Margins could moderate by 10 basis points Q-o-Q but remain steady Y-o-Y, feel analysts.


According to a poll, ex-forex fee income growth is expected to be healthy at more than 15 percent Y-o-Y. However, trading income contribution is expected to be negligible in the quarter gone by.


Asset quality is likely to be healthy, but the stress in few segments of retail loans has increased. Hence any pressure in retail loan segment will be watched, say analysts.

Meanwhile, HDFC Bank increased base rates by 20 bps to 9.8 percent as against 9.6 percent effective August 3. Hence, analysts feel net interest margin is expected to be maintained or slightly declined Q-o-Q.
